The Republic of San Montagna is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Giorgio Cavallo with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, enslaved workforce, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 6.719 billion San Montagnans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sabazio. The average income tax rate is 63.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Montagnan economy, worth a remarkable 1,583 trillion Lires a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 235,727 Lires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Little children cry as their rainbow drawings are seized by the Straight-Thought Police, edutainment video games are taking San Montagna's students to the next level, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Sabazio" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Montagna's national animal is the Cool animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

San Montagna is ranked 60,244th in the world and 39th in The Western Isles for Most Authoritarian, with 898.17 milliStalins.
